Jordan is gonna be mad at you.My goal, for now is to finish off this current deal I have ASAP, and get my **** together and then finally stop sucking at poker, and rebuild my joke of a bankroll on my own.I have no idea how long it will take me to finish off this current deal, but as soon as it's done, I'm going to reevalute, and set a new goal depending on how many days left in the month. Hopefully I'll be updating in about a week or so.- Zach

I've played 7 $30+3 SNGs in the past few days. Two 3rds and two 1sts. Tempted to start getting back into them.

vacation from the 4th till the 20th and then i move into my dorm on the 21st, so i'll be happy if i get in oh 20k hands.my real goal though is to not feed my limit HE addiction at all this month. NL is more lucrative and i need more work on it, it's just sh limit is sooooo fun.........i would also like to be able to regularly 16 table by the end of august, but that's probably not gona happen.
no set no bet

with the moderate variance and bad play, I'd say they are good tilt re-coopers.For anyone who may have lost a big chunk of their role.

Through bonuses and marginally (~1.75bb/100) winning play, I hope to increase my roll to at least $1600, up from just under $1k. I think I am looking at at least 12k hands playing 1/2 limit.I would also like to try out 2/4. Do the limits play very differently?

Which is why I'm back to playing SNG's...Except for going out of my last 3 sngs with AA vs 55, all in preflop... AA vs A4o, allin preflop... AQo vs Q6s (who limped UTG and called my huge raise from the BB)...I'd have to say variance is pwning me once again.

Had a really strange call on me in a 30+3 today. I was short-stacked with 6 people left. Had 660 with blinds of 100/200. Folds to me and I push in with Q7s in MP. Button (1,600) ponders for a bit and calls. Me: "Frig." Others fold. Button shows 43s. I flop a queen and take it...and go on to win. I can't imagine what he was thinking.

Yeah.1/2 is a lot tighter. At least that's what ive noticed on party and on absolute.2/4 is still passive though. When you move up to 3/6 and 5/10, the games get aggressive-ish.

don't care how many hands I have to put in.I have a bet w/my friend, who can make 10k first. So I'd like to get to there starting from 3/6 full ring hold'em, to 3/6 short handed, and then 5/10 short handed, and finally when i'm near the 10k level, jump into either the 200 or 400 nl game and leave wpx for like...ever? yar

Not really setting any goals for myself this month. I'm basically finished at b2b unless some of their big 5x boni come back, and I'm done at Pokerroom. Will probably start looking for a job soon, and start working on my CSC and/or CFA. My "pro" career is mostly over, so I'm not setting any big goals. Hopefully I can get 20K hands in this month, almost exclusively at Absolute and put some money towards next year's rent and expenses. I'll probably sign up at WSEX soon, and play there when there isn't enough available at Absolute. Also I'll do all the Cryptos and maybe 1-2 other bonuses.
Long signatures are really annoying.

My goal is to pass exams.After that, I have a window of about 2 1/2 weeks were I can really enjoy summer. I plan on spending a lot of time outdoors drinking lots of tequila.I also plan to get in roughly 20k hands (all nl), and hope to win somewhere between 10 - 15k.I might even give the sunday million gaurunteed on party a try. If I do, my goal is to win that.

I plan on continuing to run at 10BB/100 at 2/4 stud and stop donking off my money on god damn tournaments which I prove time and time again that I don't have patience for.
